Hisense announces its first Windows Phone, the MIRA 6 for China Telecom

As previously reported, Hisense today announced a new Windows Phone, titled the MIRA 6. The MIRA 6 is China Telecom's first Windows Phone 8.1 mobile device, featuring dual-SIM support, quad-core Qualcomm processor and other interesting specifications. Running Windows Phone 8.1, the first Windows Phone from Hisense is a surprising move since neither the manufacturer nor Microsoft mentioned any partnership.

As well as the quad-core processor, the Mira 6 comes with 8 GB internal storage (expandable with MicroSD support), 1 GB RAM, a 5-inch HD display, 8MP rear shooter (with a 5MP front-facing camera) and Dolby Digital sound. The product itself looks rather premium as one can see in the below promotion video, though we'll have to see how it handles in the hand. That all said, it's strange how they've used an Android render with the Windows Phone Start Screen.

The specifications aren't bad and it's a decent looking phone with dual-SIM support. We can see Hisense doing well by pushing this Windows Phone in China.
